is at the -- at the root of the traditional definition of marriage. >> mr. cooper, could i just understand your argument. in reading the briefs, it seems as though your principal argument is that same-sex and opposite -- opposite-sex couples are not similarly situated because opposite-sex couples can procreate, same-sex couples cannot, and the state's principal interest in marriage is in regulating procreation. is that basically correct? >> i -- your honor, that's the essential thrust of our -- our position, yes. >> is -- is there -- so you have sort of a reason for not including same-sex couples. is there any reason that you have for excluding them? in other words, you're saying, well, if we allow same-sex couples to marry, it doesn't serve the state's interest. but do you go further and say that it harms any state interest? >> your honor, we -- we go further in -- in the sense that it is reasonable to be very concerned that redefining marriage to -- as a genderless institution could well lead over time to harms to that institution and to the interests that society has always -- has -- has always used
by my good friend and colleague from tennessee, mr. cooper, as well as my good friend from washington state. the committee zeroed out these funds because the administration appears to be expecting a blank check from the congress to implement this treaty. the house must have the chance to evaluate whether the implementation of a treaty and the manner in which the administration intends to implement the treaty is in the u.s. national security interest. the report was required in the first place. i remind the house this report is mandated by law. are we comfortable in this house with letting the president ignore the law of the land as he sees fit? while the gentleman from tennessee withdrew the amendment in full committee because the offsets selected was of concern, a major -- the offset he has now is also a problem. it takes the program in darpa that has been eliminated recently and the funds for the program are planned to support transition activities to two other darpa programs. diverting $250 million would significantly slow down the schedule for these two programs. we expect preside
. >> i wholly support mr. cooper's amendment and urge my colleagues to do the same. >> mr. chairman? mr. chairman? >> mr. scott, the gentleman from georgia, is recognized for two minutes. >> mr. chairman, and mr. cooper, i certainly support the intent of the amendment. i guess my question would be wouldn't it make sense to give them the authority to bring before us a program -- a plan before they would actually spend that money and possibly let us approve what they brought before us in that plan? >> that would be the sensible thing but, you know, when general shelton and space command has already testified to us that he's already in chaos due to o&m problems we don't have that luxury of time. and i'm worried unless we lay down a marker here tonight, we may be dominated tonight by our own appropriators or by folks on the senate side not payings attention like this committee is trying to do. this is serious stuff and i was not exaggerating earlier. if this had been put on us by foreign power this would be viewed as an act of war. we should not give america a hollow forest and we're about
capabilities. it certainly would be a lot better. mr. cooper offers us a way at the very least to stem the beeping -- bleeding. i have a lot of members on my own side of the aisle who say we cannot settle. i would get rid of the whole thing and chip it away one piece at a time. we have got to give our people enough flexibility to at least deal with the worst parts of this. i appreciate very much what you said. i do not think this is simple at all. certainly, this relatively modest measure we have to take that step. i thank you. thank you for the indulgence at this late hour. gentleman from utah is recognized for two minutes. >> i will handle my committee in the morning with the same close i have on right now. sequestration was passed with a bipartisan vote. sequestration opposition was bipartisan as well. voted no ont i sequestration is nothing more me a greatves happiness and that fact. a solution to what is happening. sequestration is a problem. it was a problem compounded by prior cuts that had also taken place. everything worked together. what he is presenting here is a wonderful a
, that is actually mr. cooper. i promise we will get this slightly racist mess straightened out eventually. all right, it's the time of year where you're either depressed because you're alone or depressed because you're trapped in a relationship. happy valentine's day. to make it extra special, i gave my twitter followers the chance to proclaim their love on tv, as long as they included one thing they wanted changed about their sweetheart, in a segment called, "be mine and be better." [laughter] you don't gossip while your man is driving a vehicle. here's what you do-- you sit there quietly, and about five minutes before you reach your destination, you say, "hey, would you like some road head?" - swedish fish got one thing right--no yellow, no green. i wouldn't mind an orange. cha cha cha. rachel, take off your socks. it's [bleep] gross. why is "gravy" capitalized? is that how bad her gravy is? amy has no idea. she's making a sub-par gravy. this guy's not asking for an excellent gravy.

. >> the gentleman yields back. i heard mr. cooper say he would be happy to work with mr. lamborn. it sounds like there was room for agreement. would you be willing to withdraw this amendment and work for a full committee or how do you want to proceed? >> [inaudible conversations] >> the chair will have to be involved. it will be if you work something out. >> unanimous consent to withdraw the amendment. no objection, so ordered. the further amendments, mr. lam arn -- >> mr. rogers has an amendment. unanimous consent to call the amendments that have been worked and approved with the minorities that. >> without objection, so ordered. will the clerk pass out the amendments to be offered. without objection, leading the amendments will be dispensed with. the gentleman is recognized for two minutes for the purpose of offering and explaining the and what amendment. >> thank you mr. chairman. comprised of the following amendment 47 by mr. lamborn. on the ground-based interceptors amendment number 52 by ms. sanchez on the particular nuclear weapons in the new states. 59 by ms. sanchez on the cost estimate
sure we have our oversight capability. mr. cooper offered there's a way to get the very least stop the bleeding i would like to get rid of the sequester on everything and i and members on my own side of the aisle and say we can't but i will get rid of local thing and a chip it away one piece at a time. we have to give enough flexibility to at least deal with the worst parts of this. i appreciate very much when you said pity if i don't think this is simple at all. but certainly this relatively modest measure i think we have to take that step and i think you for the committee's indulgence of this. >> mr. chairman. >> the gentleman from utah is recognized for two minutes. >> i will handle my kennedy in the same clothes i have right now. sequestration was passed. the fact that i voted no on sequestration is nothing more than -- it gives me a great happiness and that fact and it also isn't a solution to what's happening. it's a problem compounded what entire cuts taking place. everything worked together. but mr. cooper is presenting here is a wonderful and enthusiastic approach that is
, mr. cooper. the chair: the gentleman is recognized for three minutes. mr. cooper: thank you, mr. chairman. ofise in support of the work our subcommittee and i would like to thank chairman rogers for his bipartisan leadership and the members of the subcommittee. i support the many provisions of the bill that strengthen our national security. the bill, for example, maintains a safe, secure and reliable nuclear arsenal while improving oversight of the national security administration, cost assessments and planning. it supports nonproliferation efforts to reduce the risk of nuclear terrorism and the spread of nuclear weapons. the bill increases funding for regional assets to protect our deloird forces and allies and important cooperation with israel against short and medium-ranged missile threats. it has cleanup activities and the bill supports investments in military and space assets. however, i should report that i do have reservations about several provisions of the bill that i in my opinion undermine national security and waste taxpayer dollars. for example, the bill blocks prud

is recognized. mr. cooper: i have the highest regard of the gentlelady from wyoming. she is doing a superb job of representing her constituents in wyoming. i haven't had the pleasure of really getting to know the other gentleman, but it is no secret that these three, the sponsors of the amendment, each represent an icbm, missile silo field, and these are wonderful bases in our fine country. but these are also bases we should not give a blank check to and allow to flourish in perpetuity. the cold war is over. our men and women in uniform, led by our generals and admirals, are making some very important decisions about the best way to structure our tried a -- triad, not to give up on the riad but work with start treaty which was ratified by the other body just a few years ago. there are lots of technical factors having to due with these silo fields and with the capability of the missiles. there are lots of technical factors having to do with the other elements of our triad. i ask my colleagues to oppose this amendment. despite the fine qualities of the sponsors of this amendment. because what's

an apologized. as for mrs. cooper she says her own actions surprised even herself especially the strong language she used. >> i am a christian woman and i'm very proud of it, and i don't curse, but after i shot, rage took hold, and i just blasted away, and in fact my husband afterwards he says, i never heard you talk like that. bill: she says she does not regret defending herself or her husband, he's 85 years old, a world war ii veteran who uses a wheelchair. you saw him there. martha: nicely done on her part. she said i put the gun down, the deputies are there. it's all good. all right. we want to go to this fox news alert now because in turkey it is erupting with protests. there is a live look right now hat a fairly calm scene this evening. this is file from when it was not so calm. right now we're told that it is, in the nation's capitol in istanbul. these are the images from last night that we have as thousands of anti-government protestors stormed dozens of cities across the nation. police fired water cannons, as well as teargas. protestors set the cars and road blocks on fire. it is a very

is recognized two minutes. >> following on mr. cooper's comments, this is not necessary, and it is very excessive, and is very quick. when 18 means we basically would have to start construction now, probably well ahead of the environmental impact report any studies that are under way today. as was said by mr. cooper, the man that runs this whole program says he does not need additional money now. this bill basically commits us to the next ordinary expenditure for a missile program that right now does not work. the missile system that would go into this particular site does not work. so we ought not to move until we and a program that' works is necessary. >> will the gentleman yields? want to take, i issue with your statement that it does not work. as the president assured the american people when north korea had their missile sitting on their launch sites, that our missile-defense system, part of which is near your home, is both operational and is essential for us to be able to defend ourselves against that type of missile attack. every administration has -- time, the specific missile t
for completion of the work. it's the plan of mr. thomas to clear all violations. the department has been very cooperative and explained the steps required to clear the violations and they have stated the various penalties that we are appealing from are negotiable or up for discussion once the violation are cleared. i have spoke with mr. thomas to discuss the case. we believe we have made some extent moot some of the penalties that are here in this appeal. the one thing that we are confused about and we are having difficulty with were illustrated by some of the exhibits in the packet. i have pulled them out separately for your examination. i will show what you they are. basically, on one of the items that's involved in the appeal here, it's called violation 241 because those of the last two digits of the complaint numbers. this is involving the stairs of the subject property. this is in march of 2011. the building owner took the steps to fix that by getting a building permit and paid $2300. in january of this year, this work was approved and is cleared and got a certificate of completion. two
and it does come down to relationships in a lot of these areas of cooperation. >> thank you. mr. angelus. >> good afternoon. we at verizon wireless we believe our most important responsibility to make sure our network is not only available, but reliable. so to address the question of resiliency, i would like to cover 3 important points that we do day-to-day to make sure our network is available and ready to use for the public. no. 1 is back-up systems. so just to give you a brief idea of how our network works, we have two major components of our network, we have our cet sites and our switches. in our cet sites, in all of our cell sites, we actually have batteries to account for power out ages. that's 8 hour back-up time for our batteries and in addition, most of our cell sites actually have back-up generators as well. we have about 4 days of stand by time to about maybe 10 days and then on top of that we have vendors that we work with that are on stand by to make sure that we can refuel our cell sites and also maintain them if our generators do go out of service. and then as far as

the plants, police went to the 66-year-old man's residence and conducted a knock and talk, and mr. peters was immediately cooperative and forthcoming. he invited the officers in and directed them to the direction of the marijuana. he then served up coffee while the officers went and gathered the pot plants. a time was set whereby mr. peters would turn himself in which he did, after arranging for a caregiver to come look after his sick wife. peters was booked for drug trafficking, because the number of plants exceeded 100 and he was released the same day. despite the implicit acknowledge by police that mr. peters is not a dangerous criminal, he could face up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $25,000 or both. you have to wonder, why are we doing this? look at the polling. look at this elderly man no one is hurting anyone, and there are scores of other arrests like that of mr. peters who told a reporter, i have a moral obligation to make my wife as comfortable as possible. joining me now is ryan grim reporter for the huffington post, this is your can't on drugs. ryan, i thought -- was
and pursue relevant law enforcement cooperation with other countries where mr. snowden may be attempting to travel. the airline aeroslot told us this morning a passenger named edward snowden with the same birth date as the self-identified nsa leaker was on a flight from hong kong to moscow that just landed. here at home, democratic u.s. senator chuck schumer suspects that russian president vladimir putin may have known snowden was heading his way and schumer thinks if that's the case, this will hurt our relations with russia. >> i believe so. something at this level in a state controlled country, the minute aeroslot got the notification he would be coming, i believe that putin, it's almost certain he knew. and it's likely he approved it. >> as for the question of why hong kong let snowden leave today, they say u.s. authorities never provided the information required to extradite snowden. then they add an explosive charge. here it is. the hong kong special administrative region government has formally written to the u.s. government requesting clarification on earlier reports about the hac
. >> we will hear your argument first this morning. shelby county versus holder. mr. cooper? >> thank you, mr. chief justice, and may it please the court -- new york's highest court, in a case similar to this one, remarked that until quite recently, it was an accepted uniquely reached the antiquated coverage formula raised a constitutional question. those justices recognize that the record before the congress in 2005 made it unmistakable .hat the south had changed they questioned whether there was a need for the extraordinary cost burdens of preclearance. >> may i ask you a question, assuming i accept your premise, that some portions of the south -- your county pretty much has not. in the time we are talking 240 discriminatory voting laws that were blocked by section five objections. there were numerous remedied by section two litigation. you may be the wrong party bringing this. >> this is an on-face challenge. >> that is on face? why would we vote in favor of a county whose record is the pit to me of what caused the passage of this law to start with? >> i do not agree with your premise.
and send mr. snowden to u.s. custody. >> shepard: they're not cooperating so there are congresseses for the united states. we know that there are led to believe there are other matters yet to be leaked. i know that in the past, the united states has gone on kidnapping missions for people kind of like this. is it tim for something like that? >> i don't know what options the administration may be considering. i have no way of knowing. all i know is in a normal situation, even a country that might not be allies of the united states, would have to look very seriously at granting the request to transfer someone to u.s. custody. we have no extradition treaty between the united states and the russian federation, and president putin referred to that today. but he is making a big mistake when he essentially puts the finger in the eye of the united states as he is doing these days. there will come a time when the russian government and the chinese government need something from the united states and we won't be there for them. that's the price that both china and russia are going to pay here.
spokesman jay carney is talking about our work with russia. >>> again, as you know, we understand mr. snowden to be in russia and we are, of course, in discussions with russian authorities about that and as i just noted, we have a strong law enforcement cooperative relationship with the russians and that relationship has resulted in the past and us returning criminals to russia and we are expecting the russians to examine the options available to them to expel mr. snowden for his return to the united states. >> how frustrating is it to the president that first china lets him go, and now russia seems to be on the verge of letting him go? >> again, i wouldn't want to speculate about anything that has not happened yet. i would simply say that our frustration and disappointment with hong kong and china is reflected in the statement i just made. yes. >> how did the president react when he learned that snowden had left hong kong? start there. >> well, i would say that the president's been updated by his national security staff continually on developments, as you would expect. i don't have
and we're monitoring. sg so far they're cooperating? >> it's our understanding that mr. snowden is in russia. we have communicated to the russians our hope that they will look at all options available to them to expel mr. snowden back to the united states. >> does the u.s. government believe if he's allowed to leave russia then you probably is going to give up on getting him back? >> i wouldn't want to speculate about that. i don't think give up is way to characterize the situation. we believe we is know where he is we're having appropriate conversations about that. >> quickly on immigration. one of the house democrats who try to be involved in the talks is said that it's not, doesn't believe it's a blow to immigration reform if a version of the house does not pass the house before the august recess. seems to be where the white house wants it before the august recess. are you guys comfortable with -- >> things we have learned from the white house briefing. edward snowden departed hong kong yesterday. the white house confirmed he traveled to russia, arrived in russia. he's still
offenders. we have been alerted by hong kong authorities that mr. snowden has departed hong kong to a third country. we will consider to pursue this with hong kong and pursue relevant law enforcement cooperation with other countries where mr. snowden may be attempting to travel." this is not the way the u.s. wanted this to play out. just yesterday u.s. justice department adviser sounded confident about having mr. snowden extradited from hong kong, saying that the u.s. and hong kong have this treaty and they have historically had a good arrangement or been a good partner when it comes to law enforcement issues. they fully expected that hong kong would comply with the treaty. now this raises all kinds of questions about the relationship that the u.s. thought it had with hong kong. candy? >> it does indeed. also, it raises a lot of questions about what an tradition treaty is worth. >> reporter: this is the person, keith alexander, who's been on the hot seat now for quite some is time, having to answer a lot of these tough questions about the u.s. surveillance programs, has defended it saying t
's classified. we heard from peert king talking to anderson cooper about this and anderson asked mr. journalist who published the leak information should be prosecuted and here is what he said. >> if they willing knew this was classified information action should be taken especially on something of this magnitude. i know the issue of leaks has been gone into but something on this magnitude there is an obligation moral and also legal against a reporter disclosing something which would so severely compromise national security. as a practical matter there have been in the past several years a number of reporters who have been prosecuted. the answer is yes. >> john, how is that playing out? >> reporter: that last part there, the answer is yes. it's chilling. i don't know much about the guardian's dealing with national security agencies but if you read the initial washington post account they talk about how he approached them back in february and wanted full graphics in the newspaper and when the washington post refused to do that, they said they needed to discuss this with national security officia
enforcement cooperation with other countries where mr. snowden may be attempting to travel. we're keeping an eye on this. >> jamie: every angle of the story. thank you so much. >> eric: in the old days, they fled to moscow. in the season and and ponds of cuba. now could venezuela join the list with reports that he may end up there, if so can the united states ever get him back? rick grenell a former spokesman for the last four united states ambassadors to the united nations. where do you think he is going and what do you think will happen? >> who knows. the u.s. government better get on this. i've never seen countries willfully ignore the united states requests that is going on now. if you read the statement out of hong kong, it's really unbelievable. here we have china, russia and others just completely ignoring what the u.s. government is doing. the conclusion is the u.s. government must not be doing enough. obama has to use every tool, trade, economic, diplomatic, everything available to us to get him home. it doesn't look like either the obama administration is making this priority or
